BRIQUET, ABEL; CHARLES B. WAITE; PERCY B. COX AND R.J. CARMICHAEL - PHOTOGRAPHERS
Briquet, Waite, Cox & Carmichael; 1896-1902. 1896-1902, N.P. 8 1/4" x 10 1/4" olive-colored stiff boards containing 22 original photographs by photographers Briquet, Waite, and Cox & Carmichael. Photographs range in size from 4" x 5 1/2" - 5" x 7" and attached to heavy cardboard. Twenty of the photos measure 5" x 7." Briquet was a French pioneer of photography, particularly in Mexico. The date that he first began working in Mexico is uncertain, but what is certain is that Briquet received a commission in 1876 to photograph the construction of the Mexican National Railway being built between Veracruz and Mexico City. Briquet also turned his gaze to the inhabitants and surrounding cities. In 1885 he opened a photography studio in Mexico City in 1885, making him the first commercial photographer in Mexico. He gained the attention of President Porfirio DÃaz and secured a number of commissions; however, following the Mexican Revolution of 1910 he no longer received any government contracts. Charles Waite was a California photographer who worked briefly in El Paso, Texas, before moving to Mexico in 1896. He opened a studio in Mexico City that remained in business until he left the country in 1913. His works were published in books, travel magazines, and on post cards. He also worked for several Mexican newspapers, and he documented United States scientific expeditions in Mexico. The images often included scenic Mexican images and the country's native residents. Very little is known of the American photographers Cox & Carmichael who were also active in Mexico at the end of the 19t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Friedrich Nietzsche
Anniroc Rare Books ________ Thus Spake Zarathustra Friedrich Nietzsche 1896, New York First edition, American Issue. Published in concert with a U.K. printing by Henry & Co. The exact publication dates have been difficult to track down. I've seen contemporary British book publication catalogs listing the British issue as occurring in August, which would place it after this American issue, and I've also seen other documents reversing the priority. Nevertheless, the issues appeared within months of one another. The best copy around - unrepaired and complete with all ads. Sharp and sound with bright gilt. Clean interior with owner's name on the front endpaper. Half title and title page carelessly opened resulting in two ~1.5 inch closed tears, front joint a touch rubbed otherwise a nice, Fine copy. Nietzsche's most famous work in which he expounds his views on eternal recurrence, the death of God, and the Overman(Superman). For even better pricing, visit our website! [Attributes: First Edition]

1896. 1 vol. grand in-8 reliure demi-basane blonde, dos à 2 nerfs, Librairie P. Juliot, Clermont-Ferrand, 1896, VIII-340 pp. et 12 planches hors texte Le présent ouvrage fut "publié pour être offert aux membres du Club Alpin Français qui viendront à Clermont, à l'occasion du Congrès du mois d'août 1896. Il est l'oeuvre de la collaboration improvisée de plusieurs membres de la Section d'Auvergne. Quelques semaines avant la date du Congrès, le bureau de la Section avait décidé qu'un itinéraire des diverses excursions serait imprimé et distribué aux congressistes. On se partagea le travail de rédaction, et quand chacun eut apporté son contingent, il se trouva qu'au lieu d'un simple itinéraire, on avait presque un ouvrage d'ensemble sur l'Auvergne [ . ]". Etat très satisfaisant (premier plat de couv. conservé mais sans faux -titre ni titre, petites restaurations marginales en couv. conservée et premier feuillet de texte et dans un f. en marge, reliure modeste mais bien solide) pour cet ouvrage très rare, qui propose un voyage très savant et érudit dans le Puy-de-Dôme (Clermont, Montferrand, Gergovie, la Limagne, le Puy-de-Dôme, de Royat à Randanne, du Mont-Dore au lac Chambon, à Marols et Saint-Nectaire, la Bourboule, les lacs de Besse, etc.) mais également dans le Cantal.

London, Elliot Stock, 1896. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. An important work of early Australian literature. Science fantasy of the Pilgrim's Progress kind [Locke, Spectrum 1:83]. In Bleiler [p72] as Misc, Utopia, Allegory. In Teitler [p35] as Lost Race (though he also comments that it's hard to define). Suvin, in his excellent essay 'On What is and What Is Not an SF Narration' picks this book, along with 99 contemporaries, as categorically not SF (presumably given the dream-like nature, fantastic elements and allegorical / religious basis). However one might define it, it's a rare work of Australian literature and certainly within the speculative canon (though re-reading the Suvin essay has given me doubts about how allegory fits into the speculative canon). Ferrar was born in Dublin in 1823, settled in Australia in 1842, briefly in Sydney and then in Tasmania. According to letters from Ferrar to the publisher, Elliot Stock, the book took a good four years from completion to publication and hints to around 500-600 copies being published with around half heading out to Australia (these are the author's suggestions - it's not clear how many were eventually published). Corners and spine tips bumped and worn. Owner's inscription to endpaper, vertical crease to same. Two flowers drawn(?) in ink to same endpaper. Binding a little loose, endpapers split but still quite tight to not too obvious. Inscription the rear endpaper, which is also a touch grubby. Rare. Overall a respectable copy. Four copies on COPAC, none on the market or at auction. [Regina … [Click Below for Full Description]

Black stiff leather boards with gilt decorations and "My Trip Abroad" stamped on the front cover. Leather is modestly worn with tears else very good, internally fine with clear handwritten text. Original pencil included on a loop on the binding. Woman's travel diary to various locations in Europe from Brooklyn, New York in the summer of 1896, June 20th to August 14th. Alice Campbell's diary is filled with her adventures exploring places in Europe including Genoa, Nice, Monte Carlo, Milan, Venice, Locke, Munich, Nuremburg, Paris, and more. The diary spans over two months in the summer of 1896 and is filled with daily routines and musings of Campbell's trip. In the beginning, Campbell writes a lot about the boat that took her to Italy, "The ship is tossing at a beastly rate!" She was frequently seasick and lamented about the "trifling weather" the ship experienced when traveling. "Fine, but with many clouds and the spray still dashing so high that our ports have to remain closed." When she finally got to Naples, Italy, she was relieved by the warm weather. Campbell was most interested in the cathedrals and landscapes of the places she had visited, "Passed numerous picturesque places with gay villas and gorgeous gardens, filled with tropical plants," and, "The shapes and the mountains rise behind us to what seems an immense height... I shall always remember it for its superlative beauty." Campbell made a point to vi … [Click Below for Full Description]
